One of Buffalo's most exciting destinations, especially for fans of modern and contemporary art. I am quickly overwhelmed in large-scale museums and this one, not being huge, makes it easy to enjoy the lovely works from Gauguin, Van Gogh, Picasso, Kahlo, and Pollock.

A great gallery experience! There are some truly wonderful works to enjoy, and it certainly would appeal to anyone from an Art History major to a movie.

A really great modern art gallery. Most of the collection is American and European artists and there are constantly changing exhibitions with tons of community involvement. There are sections for kids where they can get interactive and there's a nice cafe to enjoy a really good cup of coffee.

We like this gallery because we like modern art. If you are not in to that sort of thing than maybe this is not something for you. The collection is varied and sometimes you will look at a piece and say - humm, but that is what good art does it stimulates your brain or confuses it - whatever.

Some great art pieces here! Highly suggest spending an afternoon checking it out. Kid friendly.... 4 hours would be a good amount of time to soak it all in.
